    Steve didn't make any assumptions, just that its categorically incorrect to blame micron for the issue.

    Yeah no idea, when you selected the GeForce cards in the past it used to just take you to the 20 series cards, not sure why the 2080Ti isn't on the new list they have up.

    Hi there

    I thought so too when I seen these failures are down to VRAM modules from Micron(GTX1070 springs to my mind when people have issues with Micron memories on their GTX1070) but this does look like more likely like IMC, cache issue because if its memory module is faulty then downclocking VRAM should be enough to counter this

    I think GPU-Z should be able read what memory GPU is using

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    @jura11

    All 3 of my cards have Micron VRAM, still no issues and I've had one of them for over well over a month now.

    I have heavily stress tested all of them :)

    My original card had Micron memory but I never had any artifacts. Card just died. Replacement has Samsung.

    Hi there

    I would check memory used in GPU-Z this should be able read it

    Friend run his EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC with WB from start and both are now failed what I heard from him

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    As I said there I thought so these failures are down to memories which I don't think is the cause

    Friend have two EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC and both failed, they're 1 month old wgat I know, first card won't boost beyond 1350MHz(previously he run 2115-2150MHz I think and +1200MHz on VRAM) I think and other is artefacting quite badly

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Has anyone without Micron ram had a card die?

    There are practically no reports of EVGA cards failing on the EVGA forums (just a couple).

    Like you, I do not believe this to be memory related.

    Could well be memory controller related, although the artifacts that are shown don't really look like your typical artifacts, more like some sort of debug artifacts.

    1809 is back. Hopefully ray tracing and more importantly dlss is coming soon.

    I'm really hoping we get some kind of definitive answer on this, and soon.

    I'm happy my cards are ok but there is a part of me that is a little worried that there is a possibility, however small, that they might still go wrong.

    @Geryboy

    I was already on it from when it first deployed - run 'winver', maybe you already have it.

    Why do you keep defending these cards ,there video cards a tool for fun,anyway EVGA cards fail in spectacular fashion

    Just added one image and no I did not cherry pick the image.

    I wasn't defending anything, I was simply stating a fact, there are comparatively few reports of EVGA 20xx cards going wrong, when you can show me evidence to the contrary, I'll be happy to look at it.

    What you have shown me is one EVGA card that was damaged, what does that prove exactly, that every EVGA card is bad?

    By those standards every launch of every GPU ever made was a complete failure :rolleyes:

    Do you seriously believe that if EVGA (or any other company) knew that their cards were likely to start fires inside people's cases that the cards wouldn't be instantly recalled.

    That is not something you take a 'wait and see' attitude with, if someone were to lose their life as a result of EVGA's negligence, that's the end of EVGA and there could even be criminal charges if it was later revealed that prior knowledge of the defect had been swept under the rug.

    Did you even read that, doesn't sound like I am sold on the fact that there isn't a potential for problems, does it.

    Hardware goes wrong, if these cards go wrong on me, I'll be annoyed, I'll get an RMA and I'll move on, it won't be the first time and I'll wager, it won't be the last.

    I just got through RMAing a Logitech G903 that quit on me after less than 2 months. Logitech immediately replaced it with a new one, no fuss, nothing to lose any sleep over.

    It seems to me that the people who are most interested in parroting the supposed failure of these cards are people who don't own them and/or people who support competing brands, which is rather telling, don't you think ;)

    NVidia have admitted a QC screw up with sub quality component(s).
    But its open ended, no word on what/which.
    Plenty of speculation it is due to memory issues, and with some foundation.

    Yah, the admission is a good first step (not that we didn't know there were some issues) but exact details are more desirable at this point.

    At a certain number of failures they have no choice but to admit something went wrong. No big magic here fellow gurus :)
    But it's pretty embarrassing that the FE cards are more expansive than AIB partner models, which probably have less failures. Another hint at a "rushed" product release.
    That said, I hope all fellow gurus that suffer from such issues get kick ass overclocking replacement cards!
